ABSTRACT

Elegant Terns (Sterna elegans) breed in three colonies in coastal southern California. In winter, banded terns have been recovered from Mexico to Chile, but mostly in coastal Central America. There is some fidelity to nesting areas and exchange among the California colonies. Thus far, there is no evidence of exchange with colonies in Mexico.
